    It would be a great gift for myself! I have been wanting to make a bag for a while, but my sewing projects are just too many this time of the year…

    I don’t actually know anyone who sews, so I’m always the odd-ball out, and the only person I could think to give this to would be myself. There are worse things, I suppose!

    It would be perfect for my stepsister (who sews), or my friend (who is a professional opera costume maker) or myself. Who would get it? I’m not sure yet. Maybe it could be the sisterhood of the travelling sewing bag.

    Now that’s seriously cute! I’d have to recover if I won, however, as I have never won a single thing in my life. I’d likely recover by the time it arrived, :)

    I saw that cute bag on Modcloth. It was instant love! I put it directly on my wishlist for Christmas. Perhaps, for once, the mom of the can get s package from Modcloth instead of my three teenage girls grabbing every Modcloth box before it even hits the porch!

    The bag would make the perfect gift for me – or for any of my sewing buddies because it’s just so sewing appropriate. It would be a great conversation starter – sewing conversation that is.

    I would love that for carrying around some equipment to work on projects away from home. I make pajamas for kids and wold love to do major cutting out in a place with a really large table. This would make that possible.

    Oh this bag is cute!!! It would make a great gift for any of the wonderful sewing gals I work with! In particular, Linda, her 10 year old grand daughter is fighting cancer and Linda is trying to spend as much time with her as possible. This bag would be great for her visits with her grand daughter. Of course like many others have said I too would love this bag.

    This gift would be perfect for my mom! She makes fun of me for being a “compulsive sewer” but forgets she is the one who started my “addiction”!

    This bag would be the perfect present for the young aspiring designer. She travels a lot, looking for opportunities to share her passion for fashion with others. She’s going to take the world by storm and let the whole world know her story – how she started sewing on her mother’s kitchen table and making all sorts of wonderful things via Burdastyle.com…how they instilled a fire within her for community and connections. She needs the bag because it’s fabulous, just like her.

    xoxo. merry christmas!

    This would make a great gift for ME! hint hint lovely Husband. In fact, lovely Husband bought me the purse that matches this bag (he chose it himself no less!) so I would have a beautiful set to take on weekends away. I would be the snazziest Easyjet passenger going!

    I would give that bag the people who loves fashion, but it would make a gift to anyone really… Because it is really cute and sophisticated, and I think that everybody can find something that they like in it.

    This would make a great gift for my mum! She Started my interest in sewing and I made my first, unaided item (a pair of trousers no less) when I was 11! I still love sewin today but for my daughter and her synchro swimming – I now make her costumes and make and design headresses for the teams, all this whilst working full time educating children (and running a lunchtime sewing club).

    This bag would make a great gift for anyone who had use for it- especially avid sewers because they would think it reflects their personality.

    My Mommy!!:)I love this bag,but I know my mom would as well.She taught me how to sew as well as a million+ other lesson that get me through life.

    This would be perfect for her not only because this bag is the tangible version of her personality,but also because she dreams that one day her designs and projects will take her all over the world.I hope so too.

    Thank you.Happy Holidays BurdaStyle!:)

    I would want to keep it for myself obviously :P But if I had to give it to someone I would (reluctantly) give it to one of my friends who is allways buying out of the ordinary stuff and she would like this take on regular patterns . :D

    What a charming idea, and I would imagine, a great conversation starter! The bag would be a perfect gift for anyone interested in sewing, and a constant reminder to get back to all of those unfinished projects!

    Wow, i’ve hardly ever seen such an awesome bag design (well plus the fabric, of course)! It would be a great great gift for my grandma, I think she’ll just love the design as well!
